This week’s https://pensitivity101.wordpress.com/2023/01/03/truthful-tuesday-3rd-january-2023/ asks ”Do you think fireworks should be restricted?” Yes, and not just the age limit. You need to be eighteen plus to be able to buy fireworks. What is stopping some older children buying them for younger friends.
I remember a Catherine Wheel, in my back garden, not being on the fence tight enough, and chasing my mum into the kitchen. From that day we only went to proper firework’s displays, or watched them from the window.
Sparklers were allowed, but that was all. Even then the injuries can be fatal.
Also, having a dog, fireworks can be frightening for them. They hate the loud noises. I’m not saying fireworks should be banned, just that they are used for displays, rather than personal use. Thousands every year are injured with fireworks, and I believe the laws over buying them should at least be tightened. The age restriction is not enough and even adults need to be wary of the dangers they pose.
What is the danger of watching them in a fireworks display.
